FEATURED AUTHORS

Richard Vallerand AUTHOR, ILLUSTRATOR An animation college graduate, Richard Vallerand has been active in 2D and short film animation for the past twenty years. Before devoting himself to his art full time, he also worked in graphic design and development for entertainment giants, like Warner Brothers and Disney for many years. When the opportunity to start his own practice came along thanks in part to Dijef, he leapt and cofounded La shop à bulle workshop, a creative space dedicated to comic strips. The LabRats (Les Laborats) combines comic strips published in the popular science magazine for teens, Curium.

Patrick Bizier AUTHOR, ILLUSTRATOR I don’t like straight lines. I prefer when they break. I like them organic and lively. I want to see them curve and mesh together, creating something altogether new. I want them to transport me somewhere else. I love the accidents that happen along the way. After earning a BFA from the Université du Québec à Montréal, Patrick Bizier moved to Grenoble in 1985 to specialize in etching. He then turned his attention to graphic design and illustration. Alongside his commercial work, he has also had his work featured in exhibitions, books, and magazines. A comic book lover since forever, he published his first comic book The Admiral and the Meathead (L’Amiral et l’Andouille) through Éditions Michel Quintin.

Freg AUTHOR, ILLUSTRATOR A native of Quebec City, Freg majored in graphic design before becoming a full-time author and illustrator. Drawn to several art disciplines at once – including improvisation, photography, drawing, and humour – he combined his many interests in his first comic book, published by Éditions Petit Homme in 2013. Since then, he has travelled across Quebec leading activities and educational workshops in schools. Today, his portfolio includes several series: The Smikee Gang (La Bande à Smikee), Leo P., Private Detective (Léo P., détective privé), Doctor Rip (Docteur RIP), and MultiMax.

Velm AUTHOR, ILLUSTRATOR Valerie is my name. I like comics (creating and reading them), drawing, drinking (sometimes coffee, sometimes beer), movies, and animals. That’s about it! A native of Laval, Velm joined the Old Montreal comic arts program in 2012. In 2014, she started working on comic strips and in 2015, her webcomic La première was a finalist in the renowned Angouleme Festival’s Révélation Blog competition. Today, she continues to make her way in the Quebec comic art scene. After the publication of the trilogy The First (La première), a graphic novel for young adults, she started to work on the new children’s series, The Agraoba (L’Agraoba).
